Teachers and singers, are you wondering how to celebrate American culture while developing the classical singing skills needed for contents and recitals?
Church music leaders, are you looking for a unique way to share the faith, a change in style to draw attention to the Gospel in song?
This moving neoclassical restyling of a beloved American Spiritual solves both problems.

This song came from the hearts of African Americans who had been treated with extreme cruelty, but would one day emerge triumphant. In context, "Were You There When They Crucified My Lord?" shows their belief in the God who had empathized with their suffering by taking a cross, and who had conquered even death by rising victoriously from the grave.
Although it’s great for any time of year, "Were You There When They Crucified My Lord?" is especially appropriate for the Easter season.
Range: A below middle C to Eb above middle C
Duration: Approximately 3:15
Uses: Church, school, private lessons, etc.
